The Regional Freight Land Use Study, funded through the New York Metropolitan Transportation Council, has been undertaken to assess the current mix of land uses related to goods movement in the multi-state New York City metropolitan region. The Study assessed the impacts on those land uses of changing business models among retailers and shippers as they develop, adapt, and deploy new technologies.  The Study evaluated local, regional, and national development pressures on freight-related and industrial land uses in the multi-state metropolitan region. This region includes the planning areas of the 10 Metropolitan Planning Organizations and Councils of Government in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania which comprise the Metropolitan Area Planning (MAP) Forum.


On May 12, 2022, the MAP Forum’s Multi-State Freight Working Group will present and discuss the preliminary findings of this study.
